Every person who operates a vehicle has a responsibility to use reasonable care while driving. They also have a responsibility to maintain a reasonably safe rate of speed, to keep their vehicle under reasonable control, to maintain a proper lookout, to be aware of what is in their view, to use reasonable care to avoid an accident, and a duty to obey traffic laws.
Unfortunately, some drivers are irresponsible, and irresponsible drivers cause accidents that hurt innocent people. With the ever-increasing costs of medical care, serious injuries resulting from negligent drivers can be financially devastating and even minor injuries are expensive. Coupled with the loss of income if you are unable to work due to the injuries, the costs associated with medical care can result in financial ruin.
If you’ve been hurt or injured as a result of a negligent or irresponsible driver you may be entitled to recover for your damages which may include:
*Reimbursement for the cost of medical care, services and supplies required for your treatment;
*Compensation for the loss of your ability to earn income as a result of your injuries;
*Compensation for any physical pain and suffering or discomfort resulting from the injuries;
*Compensation for any permanent impairment resulting from the injuries;
*Compensation for physical disfigurement resulting from the injuries;
*Compensation for Loss of enjoyment of life resulting from the injuries;
*Compensation for damages to your vehicle or other personal property resulting from the accident;
*Compensation for lost wages resulting from the injuries;
If you or a loved one have been injured as a result of an irresponsible driver we would be glad to meet with you and discuss your case. In most cases we work on a contingency fee basis meaning that, with the exception of expenses we incur, we don’t get paid unless we are able to recover for you.
In addition to helping your recover for your damages, we may be able to help you defer the collection of your unpaid medical bills until your case is resolved and we may be able to negotiate with your medical providers to accept less than owed in order to maximize your net recovery.
